London and Manchester House collectives 4totheFloor, Makinâ€™ Moves and Community have teamed up with Uchikawaâ€™s LoftSoul Recordings imprint alongside R2 Records to present a night of quality music over two rooms.
Japanâ€™s DJ Uchikawa has been a driving force for quality soulful music from jazz through to techno for 30 years, dubbed as the â€œJapan Jayâ€ by Norman Jay himself. Now his global musical family have pulled together to celebrate his three decades in music.
DJ Uchikawa will be playing a special live set alongside vocalists Lyric L (FreshRotations) & Andrea Clarke (BB Boogie) plus Basil Isaac on percussion.
Coinciding with the release of Uchiâ€™s new Loftsoul E.P. â€œWait For Youâ€, Chicago legend Cordell Johnson will be flying over for an exclusive set.
Add to that a plethora of Londonâ€™s finest DJs, (as well as a special guest to be announced), and the line-up reflects the love and respect Uchikawa has gathered over the years. Come celebrate.

Nyumba Deep Presentsâ€¦.
The Bedroom Bar
68 Rivington Street
On Friday 16th November, Nyumba Deep continue their residency at The Bedroom Bar with a really special party. A party personal to not only me but to a whole generation of like minded Party People who used to gather once a month on a Thursday night to take in something truly special.
It is our pleasure to bring you Soulmates.
Soulmates is a celebration of underground soulful house music. It has carved out a niche for itself in being one of the
few nights in London where you can hear brilliantly soulful, yet genuinely underground house music month after month.
Soulmatesâ€™ refreshing music policy and insistence on quality control draws in one of the finest and friendliest crowds in London. Soul heads to jazz dancers, industry types to in-the-know music lovers can all be found shaking a leg on the Soulmates dancefloor, making for a wonderfully inclusive, family vibe at each and every event.
Over the years they have had regular guests including Glenn Underground, Casamena, Frankie Feliciano, Jovonn, Karizma, Alix Alvarez, Alton Miller, Greg Gauthier and more joining superb residents Dennis Christensen and Rap Saunders behind the decks – plus regular support from guests on percussion and on the mic. A party everyone should experience!
It’s neither a deep, soulful, UK or US sound… It’s a Soulmates sound!
Supporting Rap and Dennis will be Nyumba Deep’s Leon Paul.
Expect nothing but the best in Deep Soulful House music for all you Party People.
So for one night only Soulmates Return for those who like to reminisce or for those who missed out the first time around.
